During the 1930s and 40s, Yao Lee's high, soft singing style was typical of Chinese popular music of the time. She performed numerous popular standards, such as Wishing You Happiness and Prosperity and "By the Suzhou River" with her brother Yao Min. She is famous for her 1940 version of Rose, Rose, I Love You, later recorded by Frankie Laine in the United States with English lyrics. (Her version was also released in the US and the United Kingdom credited to "Miss Hue Lee"). Yao was known as "the Silver Voice" alluding to fellow Shanghai singer Zhou Xuan, who was known as "the Golden Voice".

With increasing Western influence in the region after World War II and her move to Hong Kong, Yao Lee's singing changed. She was introduced to more Western popular music and became an admirer of American singer Patti Page whom she emulated by lowering her voice and incorporating some vocal mannerisms. As a result, Yao is sometimes called "Hong Kong's Patti Page."

Yao was extremely prolific with over 400 gramophone records attributed to her.
